Before You Go ...

  • Even on short hikes, be prepared for changeable weather. Carry food, water, raingear and extra layers of clothing.
  • Do not drink water directly from streams. We recommend boiling water or using a water filter or other treatment that kills or filters giardia and cryptosporidium. Iodine tablets do not kill cryptosporidium.
  • Stay on trails to avoid injury to yourself and the park's vegetation.
  • Pack out all trash, including food waste.
  • Pets are not allowed on park trails or beaches -- except for the following areas where leashed (up to six feet in length) pets are permitted:
    • Spruce Railroad Trail (Olympic Discovery Trail)
    • Rialto Beach one-half mile north to Ellen Creek
    • All Kalaloch beaches (from Ruby Beach south to South Beach)
    • Peabody Creek Trail
